This year, I am looking forward to exhibiting my artwork with a wonderful group of four talented artists and artisans, who will be exhibiting as Art in the Barn at The New Inn Pub, Middleton Cheney. The Barn is a fabulous space and there will be a beautiful mix of unique and individual artwork, including some great gift ideas too. You will be able to find out more about our inspirations, individual techniques and artistic journeys. The pub will be open during our exhibition, which serves great food. The perfect place to visit with ample parking.
We are at the New Inn from the 4th to the 12th of May. Daily Opening from 11.00am till 5.00pm
My fellow artists are:
Penny Varley - ceramics
Melanie Charles - painter
Lis Mann – mixed media
Sharon Highway (Mallory Journals_ – handmade journals)
I've always been interested in the Arts, but my professional career started with the completion of a BEd teaching degree with Art and Design. I enjoyed a successful career as a primary school teacher for many years, before going on to pursue my passion and love for art. My first solo exhibition was held at Walton village, in 2005, and I was overwhelmed by the response. This success encouraged me to continue developing my own expressive and individual style and I have enjoyed exhibiting in various galleries throughout the UK, holding regular events and exhibitions throughout the year.
I love beautiful coastal landscapes, quirky harbours and the ever-changing countryside of Great Britain. This is where my true inspiration comes from and my enjoyment of working with various mediums creating an exciting blend of textures, shapes and vibrant colours; whilst continually experimenting with the effects that can be created using gesso, acrylic, acrylic inks and a variety of mark making materials. The resulting depth of colour, movement and versatility that can be achieved using these elements is what I find really exciting. Often, I will imagine a scene and decide how I want certain colours to flow together to create a particular atmosphere. I get enormous pleasure from examining the form, colours, light and textures within our diverse landscape and am continually striving to capture this.
All of my artwork, including new originals, are available to be viewed or purchased on my own website. The Shop website page shows my artwork split down into different themes which includes: Seascapes, Landscapes and my quirky World Series. There are a wide variety of framed/mounted originals, Giclée prints and coasters available, all ready to be delivered straight to your door.
